Dreams From The California Notebooks 02

Standard

*

I cannot be richer than
on summer nights

deep in silence
and beauty
open wide open

window mind soaring
above a few clouds strolling
by the moon

the language of nature
whispering to me the
dreams to come

Lighter Than Daylight

Standard

*

let’s not forget
the improvised song

falling from above when
you stop to meditate

wings flapping
nervously sounding

almost metallic
that clear it seems

lighter than
daylight

Beauty Between Silences

Standard

*

I load on beauty
between silences
those of plants and
lack of rain

these shivering
when reefers come
are not gossip or loud
news they are stanzas

needing spaces
in between needing
solid whites an invisible
bench to sit on

Beauty Lingering Unseen

Standard

*

it’s an afterward
moving

this of giving poetry
a way

to talk about the beauty
lingering

unseen
sensitivity shining

bright
in our darker days

when we
think there’s little

to be seen

The Birds Trills

Standard

*

just before
I breathed in I was
breathing out

I run to this
place to be with you
you seem aloof

to life or to give
anything out afraid
even to receive

I play with the birds
trills as people rush
home from work

New Landscapes

Standard

*

I left the valley
green and humid
where wind was but

a rare guest for
the coast to be blown
away by crosswinds

sunlight and waves running
around with my wet suit
catching waves long

trips to the unknown
marine depths now I find
myself in the desert away

from things experienced
before synced in with my
passion for the new

landscapes of the spirit

The Tenderness Of The Sky

Standard

*

it’s the tenderness
of the sky
laying his shroud

over me
in the morning that
opens my eyes

to gratitude
glimpses of love
peeking through

as little drops left

after the rain
on the heads
of grass blades

Eyeing The Sky

Standard

*

it’s part of nature
to wait it took me
a long time to get
it to taste the truth
of such statement

beauty of flowers

starts in the cycle
the seed growing
in darkness eyeing
the sky smiling to
the breeze falling

asleep at night so
many times until
it’s fall come in
time that is a
repeat that

is patience at his best

Now I Lay Me Down…

Standard

*

it is right by the side
of the road the Cathedral
In The Pines Cemetery

as if you could just roll
off the side of the road
dead and ready to lay

where there are no fences
but some more noise to
endure or is it a reminder

when the sun hides
at sunset behind red
blood colored clouds
